  • The Story Behind the Viral Photo of a Crying Child at the Border

The young girl on the cover comes from a photo taken by Getty photographer John Moore at the southern U.S. border.

On TIME magazine's cover, the portion of the picture showing the little girl is isolated to create an illustration.

"Time" magazine will feature a viral image of a two-year-old Honduran girl crying at the U.S. -Mexico border on its latest cover. The cover features President Donald Trump looking down at a frightened immigrant girl.

The cover is for the July 2 edition of the magazine, which will appear on newsstands the week of Independence Day.

Moore, who is a Getty Images special correspondent and senior staff reporter and was interviewed by TIME, did note the importance of the preserving the integrity of the original photo. Last week, he snapped the photo that became one of the most influential images detailing the separation of families under the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy.


Mr Moore said he also saw another mother using the headlights of a patrol vehicle to breastfeed her baby. "Ever since I took those pictures, I think about that moment often".

On Wednesday President Trump signed an executive order that he said would end the separation of children from their parents when families cross illegally.

According to Washington Post, Moore once spoke about how single people who crossed the river during the day and then ran or hid from the Border Patrol.

"I could see the fear on their faces and in their eyes". The policy stipulates the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) refer all cases of illegal entry to be criminally prosecuted and, as a result, the parents are detained and because the children are not charged with a crime, they are not detained with the parents.

"We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together", said Trump, who added that he didn't like the "sight" or "feeling" of children separated from their parents.
